    to destroy all the Philistines.
It’s time to destroy all who are left alive
    who could help Tyre and Sidon.
The Lord will soon destroy the Philistines.
    He will destroy those left alive from the island of Crete.
The people from Gaza will be sad and shave their heads.
    The people from Ashkelon will be made silent.
Those left alive from the valley,
    how long will you cut yourselves?[a]

“You cry, ‘Sword of the Lord,
    how long will you keep fighting?
Return to your holder.
    Stop! Be still.’
